Beyond the Mine - 2015 Social and Environmental Performance

Mining is a long-term business with commitments and investments that span decades, and social, political and environmental risks that are becoming increasingly complex. At Newmont, we recognize that there is a strong correlation between operational excellence and effectively managing social and environmental risks.

Our proactive and systematic approach to sustainability helps us understand and manage these risks so that we can ensure our operating stability and build the financial strength and resilience needed to support sustainable, responsible mineral development that creates value and improves lives.

Newmont’s 2015 Beyond the Mine Social and Environmental Performance Report provides a comprehensive and in-depth update on our efforts to serve as a catalyst for local economic development through transparent and respectful stakeholder engagement and as responsible stewards of the environment. We invite you to explore the report.
